Because quarantine and worry has put an emphasis on comfort for all of us, most of my new clothing items this Fall are simple. This year, I have a good handle on how to organize my clothing with pieces I will want to mix and match.
So this is a breakdown of a few important purchases I have made to fill out my Fall closet. Since the weather remains mild here into November, I feel like long sleeves and a jacket are sufficient to keep myself comfortable. The outfits that I return to again and again are really quite basic to throw together.
If you are trying to purchase something trendy and stay on budget, you can't go wrong with cool bottoms. This way you can incorporate the season's latest styles without spending 100$+ on a jacket or dress. For example, I focused my spending on the leather trend. See some examples below!
Extra Long Faux Leather Leggings
Tight Faux Leather Waistband Leggings H&M $35
Faux Leather Short with Silver Buckle
Next, I tried some options in styles I've wanted to own, but was hesitant to try until I figured they are sticking around. During this crisis, I have actually been pretty happy to have a chance to broaden my shopping choices as I can get opinions from family and close friends without ever seeing strangers! The two options I picked are baggier pants. Of course, the boyfriend/mom jean is as comfy as it gets. I love this perfectly blue pair I discovered from Zara! They are a cotton blend that is a great quality just as you can get at Levi's or from Agolde. I really want to get them in black as well. I just adore the length and fit which looks good with sneakers, boots and pumps.
Mom Fit Jeans ZARA $40
I have also been wanting, for two years now, a pair of dressy flowy pants as a formal option. I have accumulated over the past couple of summers a couple of cropped blouses that aren't right to style with a skinny pant. I am super happy with the Mason Pant off of Reformation. The little pleats help cinch in the waist in an elegant way, and I'd add even more glam by looping a belt through.

I hope you have enjoyed this breakdown of some pant styles we are seeing a lot of this Autumn! I'm enjoying the beauty and wonderful weather we are getting, I just want it to continue on so I can wear these cute purchases as much as possible. And, for your reference, if you guys are interested in any of these pieces, I am 5'8" so some of these do look a little short in general on me! I will mainly wear boots with these looks to keep the line flowing.
My next post will be all about tops, and as winter approaches I will be looking at a couple of long coats. In late November, everybody's outfit is gonna be covered up so that is a time that I love to show off cool accessories. What are you going to be shopping for in the coming weeks? Do you like any of the brands I've mentioned?
